Sharp Cheddar Democracy

Posted: April 12, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

So check it out, this episode is not as fluffy as the last few weeks, but does cover the recent case of RNC v. DNC, in which a 5-4 majority either (1) upheld Constitutional protections against tyranny, or (2) disenfranchised Democratic voters in the midst of an emergency.  THE ANSWER MAY SURPRISE YOU!!  Law starts at (09:10), but you’d be missing a long Frozen analogy that rules.  Also, we are going to end on positive notes from here on out, so from (36:00), Brett and Nazim shared good things going on in life.

The PTO Can GTFO

Posted: April 5, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

This week’s episode covers PTO v. Booking.com, a case that not only discusses the application of “generic” terms to websites, but also continues are on-going efforts of covering the least-stressful cases as possible.  Enjoy this one with a cup of chamomile tea.  Law starts at (07:30).

Kagan and the Dudes

Posted: March 29, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

Turns out we couldn’t quit you that easily.  This week covers the recent decision in Kahler v. Kansas, which is as much about State’s rights and Due Process as it is about dogs who want you to murder people.  Law starts at (07:35).

Delaware Are You?

Posted: March 22, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

This week’s episode accomplishes two things. First, your boys cover the Delaware-centric case of Carney v. Adams, which asks why a clearly unconstitutional way to appoint judges took this long to fix.  Second, your main dudes discuss pie (a lot), despotism, cartoons, and other topics to help lighten the mood.  Law starts at (12:30).  Also, we are going to a less-regular schedule, but we are not stopping the podcast, so don’t panic if we’re not here next week.

It’s a Small World After All

Posted: March 8, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

Ok, here’s the situation.  Brett went away on a weekend’s vacation, so the first half of this is talking about the Star Wars Theme Park at Disney World.  Around the (15:00) mark, the episode turns to Barton v. Barr and Kansas v. Garcia, which both discuss judicial interpretation of immigration statutes.  This one is heavy on nonsense, so we’ll tighten things up next week.

Sotomayoral Debate

Posted: March 1, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

This week’s episode covers Justice Sotomayor’s dissent in Wolf v. Cook County, which generally discusses injunctions, the power of judicial review and the current Court’s approach to the current Administration.  The law starts from the beginning and generally stays on topic until the end, when we start talking about Burger King and the Masked Singer.

Don’t Go Chasing Water Definitions

Posted: February 23, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

The podcast continues Confusing Statute Month, as Brett and Nazim discuss the Clear Water Act through the case of City of Maui v. Hawaii Wildlife Fund.  This case covers exciting things like the definition of the word “from”, so there’s a lot of tangents.  To that point, the law starts at (09:27).

What’s Wrong with Obamacare This Time??

Posted: February 16, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

This week’s episode brings back another dysfunctional reoccurring guest, the Affordable Care Act, through the case of Land of Lincoln Mutual Health Insurance Co. v. United States, which asks whether or the not the government can refuse to pay insurers statutory payments.  It’s a doozy.  The law starts from the beginning, but it’s subject to constant interruptions.
